European Commission launches 2013 Call for Proposals in the field of sport

The European Commission has recently published a new Call for Proposals, that will serve to select high-quality transnational projects which will be supported through the 2013 Preparatory Action "European Partnership on Sports":


In the framework of the implementation of the second year of the Preparatory Action European Partnership on Sports, the Commission has launched a call for proposals to support transnational projects presented by public bodies or civil society organisations in the field of sport. The main novelty in relation to last year is that in the 2013 call for proposals the private third-party funding is optional: Where third-party private funding co-finances the project's eligible costs, the percentage will translate in additional award points.


Three areas will be covered:
(1) Strengthening of good governance and dual careers in sport through support for the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations.
(2) Protecting athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions.
(3) Promoting traditional European sports and games.


The deadline for submission is 19 July 2013.
